When you have oily, shiny skin you need to get creative with your beauty routine to prevent your face from looking like an oil slick. So when I saw a product at a sample sale that claimed to neutralize the shine I said why not give it a try? I purchased La Roche-Posay Emulsion Hydratante Matite Active and I gave it a shot. The moisturizer is applied morning and night and claimed to minimize large pores, neutralize shine and clear sebum clogged pores. I applied the very lightweight moisturizer right after I washed my face.
I was impressed by how the fluid absorbed quickly and the immediate disappearance of my shiny face. My skin felt very smooth to the touch and not at all sticky or tacky. My sensitive skin was not irritated; it’s oil free and fragrance free. La Roche skin care products are hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic so they are great for skin that is acne prone and easily irritated.
My face remained shine free for about 5 hours and I was very happy with the results. This product will be great in the summer when I don’t feel like wearing foundation or pressed powder.This moisturizer is very popular in Europe but can be found online on various websites. It’s all about the little luxuries in life ya know!
